Art and asparagus

The South Perry Farmers Market will be outdoors today for the first time this season. Its in The Shop's parking lot and open from 3-7 p.m. There were fresh asparagus last week… just throwing that out there.
Today is garden day at the market - come in and get your questions answered about tomatoes and anything else you are growing in your yard.
Grant Park Community Garden
still has plots for sale - you can purchase those at the farmers market as well.
Don't forget about the work party on Saturday morning. Starting at 9 a.m. that's when volunteers put together the frames for the raised beds. Brind basic hand tools and strong arms.
And it's Third Thursday, which means there are art shows at South Perry businesses. Local photographer Dean Davis is showing at South Perry Pizza.

Finally - here's a link to today's story about the proposed alcohol impact zone around the South Perry District.

It’s Third Thursday

The South Perry Business District is putting on its first art walk on St. Patrick's Day (March 17) with art exhibits and entertainment at many of the businesses. Brought to you by the people of South Perry Pizza and supported by the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association, the plan is to have an art walk on the third Thursday of every month. Here's the line up - wear green:

Original art @ Odyssey Youth Center, 1121 S. Perry
Tea information and samples @ Lorien Herbs and Natural Foods, 1102 S. Perry
Paintings by Dennis Strasser @ South Perry Pizza, 1011 S. Perry
Woodwork by Dan McGrew @ The Lantern Tavern, 1004 S. Perry
Original artwork @ The Altamont Pharmacy, 928 S. Perry
Music & The Lion's Share theater @ The South Perry Farmers' Market, 915 S. Perry

The Farmers Market is open from 3-6 p.m. and most other venues are open during the same time.
The South Perry Blog will be roaming the venues starting around 3 p.m. - see you there.

Market day on South Perry

It's a great afternoon at The Shop - looking at the Perry Street Farmers' Market's new indoor location just across the street. Talked to a business owner just a minute ago - there are some movement toward establishing a monthly art walk in the neighborhood. Stay tuned.
The South Perry Neighorbood and Business Association is meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 6 p.m. at the Perry Street Cafe; everyone is welcome.
And the South Perry Sock and Boot Drive has been super successful - the blog will bring you an update later. Boots and socks are still needed.

Art for the market

I lifted this post from the South Perry Farmers' market's Facebook profile:

“ART! Do you, your kids or your friends have some? We have lots of wall space for you at the indoor farmers' market for display - we'd love to talk about hosting your work - for sale, to give your kids the opportunity to share their creativity - we want to celebrate the art of our community!”

And there is reason to celebrate: the market's home at the Spokane Buddhist Temple gym is now permanent. Look for a story in tomorrow's Voices and come by the market between 3-6 p.m. The blog will be at The Shop during the same time, come in and say hello.

Speaking of, ahem, First Friday

Via e-mail from the Spokane Arts Commission: We’re excited about Visual Arts Tour on Friday, October 1 and  Saturday, October 2. Venues are open 5 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday.
There are 41 venues with all species and subspecies of art, music, and food.  With special events at the Lion’s Lair, at Terrain, the Riverspeak Collective’s exhibition “Kinetic”, to mature artists works like Selene Santucci at the Chase and Harold Balsz at the TinMan there is lots to see and try out.  For a complete schedule of galleries, events, and openings, please download below or check out the Spokesman Review & the Inlander!  Come enjoy an evening of drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, photography and other visual art. Take in diverse live performances!  This tour has some traditions and some new energetic and curious activities. Here’s the list,

Last minute First Friday?

Hello neighbors - Summer Hightower, the owner of Veda Lux Boutique, is trying to pull together a last minute First Friday celebration for, well, tomorrow. Summer wants to bring First Friday to South Perry, so if you are a local artist or musician and you can help her out in however little way tomorrow - stop by her shop (right next to the windmill) or find her here on Facebook.

First Friday on Perry?

Here’s an idea free for the taking: how about bringing First Friday to South Perry?

The downtown art and retail walk and celebration has gained a huge following over the last couple of years. For those unfamiliar with the idea, it’s a simple concept: on the first Friday of every month retailers, restaurants and galleries host local art shows and receptions for local artists, big and small. Venues stay open from 6-8 p.m. The Downtown Spokane Partnership is the driving force behind the event - check out August’s First Friday participants here.
